Organic Still Sounds Better than Curvilinear

I'm hesitant to use the word 'organic.'  It has become such a bizarre catch-all lately that we forget what the true roots of it are.  I, failure that I was at organic chemistry, have not forgotten.  (Maybe it is this memory that makes me shudder at the word, but that is again, another story for another time.)  I breeched my own code of ethics when I broke open the thesaurus to look up a better word than 'organic' to describe these next few images ("Rule: if you can't come up with the word on your own, you should never use it!"), but all I could come up with, lamely, is 'curvilinear,' which is a form of geometric conception.  If you come up with something better, let me know.  No matter what I think of it, 'organic' still sounds better than 'curvilinear.'
